5 Things About Me: Robby Andrews

  1. 2015 Sir Walter Miler Champion in 3:57 over high school rival Kyle Merber, who beat me in the 2008 Millrose Games Mile at Madison Square Garden that was televised on ESPN. Revenge is best served in Raleigh.
  2. I have paced dozens of 1500m races, but this will be the first mile that I pace, and hopefully it’s a sub-4!
  3. I have two cats: Cuff and Link. The first person to come up to me and say what movie inspired their names will be awarded my race bib (signed).
  4. My fiancé, Josette Norris, is entered in the women’s race and will look to break 4:30 for the mile for the first time at the age of 25. I first broke 4:30 when I was 15.
  5. My dad, Bob has a mile PR of 4:02 while running for Westchester Puma. My mom, Mary, has a mile PR of 5:02 from Moore Catholic in Staten Island. My sister, Kristin Fitzgerald, has a mile PR of 4:42 and won the open division of Sir Walter Miler in 2018. Kristin’s husband, Drew Fitzgerald, was a 7′ high jumper at Bucknell University where his mile potential is still unknown.

5 Fast Questions

  1. What’s something people should add to their Netflix (or any streaming service) or Podcast queue? The Office, Parks and Rec, and Binging with Babish (on YouTube)
  2. What’s your favorite training shoe right now (or ever)? Adidas Adizero Boston 10
